Welcome to the website of the Evesham Township School District. Our district includes preschool through eighth grade. We are one of the largest elementary school districts in southern New Jersey, located approximately twenty miles east of Philadelphia. We have six elementary schools and two middle schools with a total enrollment of approximately 4,400 students. We invite you to browse through this website where you will find a great deal of wonderful information about our schools and district.

General Information

Our schools offer state of the art instructional programs and facilities. We provide a wide range of outstanding curricular and co-curricular opportunities designed to meet the needs of all students. We work closely with the community to enhance the educational experiences provided for the students. Each school has an active PTA or PTO, enthusiastic teaching staff and very dedicated support staff. We are very proud of our students and the wonderful staff who guide the children toward excellence in education.

A Message from the Superintendent

There have been many exciting activities taking place.  At the end of October, Halloween activities were held at all of our elementary schools with our students dressing up in their favorite costumes.  November brought parent-teacher conferences, which was a great opportunity for all of our parents to meet with teachers to discuss their child’s progress.  Parents also had the opportunity to visit their child’s classroom during American Education Week.  Also in November, our fifth and eighth grade students participated in Student Council elections as part of their Social Studies units of instruction.  December also brings the start of the winter concert season.  The performances so far have been wonderful!

I have also had the opportunity to visit some of our classrooms across the district.  I always enjoy spending time with our students and staff.  Last week, I visited Ms. Kimenhour’s 7th grade Language Arts class at DeMasi Middle School.  Her class was starting a new reading unit, Wilderness, which includes reading “The Call of the Wild”.  I also had the privilege of attending the Fifth Grade Student Council Inauguration at Van Zant School.  I was very impressed with the speeches provided by the students that were chosen by their peers to be part of the student council.  Every student expressed their desire to be a good listener, be respectful, show kindness, and to help those in need.  While there, I congratulated the new student council representatives and offered some words of encouragement to all the fifth graders in attendance. 

As you may be aware, I will be retiring effective February 1, 2020.  As such, this will be my final message to you.  It’s hard to believe that 32 years of my life has gone by so quickly.  I have learned much over the years and feel very fortunate to have worked with such wonderful people in every position I’ve held.  I am looking forward to the next phase of my life, but I will truly miss all of you as well.  The staff, students, and supportive community members of the Evesham Township School District will always hold a special place in my heart.  I am forever honored to be your Superintendent of Schools.

2019-2020 Budget Update

At the meeting on March 12, the Evesham Township Board of Education approved the tentative 2019-2020 school budget. This budget maintains all current instructional programs, sustains current class sizes, focuses on student achievement and enhances staff professional development.

Specific budget initiatives include an update to mathematics resources/materials, and the upgrade of technology hardware such as interactive whiteboards and security cameras. As a result of a significant reduction in state aid supporting our budget, there was a need for reduced spending on supplies, non-instructional equipment, and capital projects.

The Board held a public hearing and adopted the final 2019-2020 budget on May 2. The new school year begins on July 1, 2019.

Additional information regarding the budget is posted on this website.
